Recycled DIY Home Decor....

I had this weird idea.  Ready?
Rather than just spend countless hours pinning ideas on Pinterest...I'm actually gonna DO some of them! 
I know...wth...right? 
The filled cabinet up above actually has had doors but they only served to get in my way, so instead, they became picture frames.
Using my silhouette cutting machine, I designed the font styles and sizes and then adhered the vinyl letters to the wall.
I've since removed the side flourishes...that was completely experimental and they didn't make the cut, but the vinyl saying inside did.
There you have it..
1 pin down and 3,999 to go!

Hugs and Happy Doing Stuff...

So cool! I've been slowly trying out my pins. Most of them are food related, but gotta start somewhere right! 😉 I think I'm at 10 with 10,000 to go! Thanks for stopping by the other day & leaving me such nice love!!!!

Tracy said...

WAY beyond cool GF! I'm so sorry I've been so behind in visiting. I had a couple of weeks where I was just anti-computer then it was anti-me. LOL Hope all is well with you. Did Fred vacate the premises? Hugs!

Oh bravo! Yes... to actually act on some of the pinning (though I'm not as fanatical as some, mentioning no names) - and what a result! Looking forward to lots more pinspiration projects.

Pure genius! I'll be looking for obsolete doors now... Jenny x

Margaret said...

OK... This is genius! Both the concept of making the things found on Pinterest AND making a frame for your vinyl lettering! Gives it a more 'finished' look!
